FULTON, MO -- Five regular-season conference champions and five squads that qualified for national championship tournaments in 2011 highlight the William Woods University women's volleyball schedule announced Tuesday by head coach Monica Renfrow.

The 37 games announced on the schedule include 16 home matches, welcoming national qualifiers Columbia College and Missouri Baptist University. Also highlighting the home schedule is a pair of triangular matches, including a contest featuring intra-city foe Westminster College. The Owls will also take part in two tournaments on the 2012 slate, including a trip to the Ashford University Invitational.

"For the 2012 season, we wanted to focus on a strong non-conference schedule that would help us prepare for a successful AMC season," said Renfrow. "Our goal was to see a variety of teams out of conference that could help our big freshman class get acclimated to the style of play that we can expect once we get deeper into our conference season and postseason tournament. We also wanted to bring the WWU Volleyball team home to Anderson Arena more so our friends, families and fans could come out and support us throughout the year."

The Owls open the 2012 season on the road at Evangel University on August 28th before returning home on August 30th. WWU welcomes NAIA newcomers Lindenwood University-Belleville for the home opener and is set to open the American Midwest Conference portion of the slate in Anderson Arena on September 4 against Stephens College. The conference opener will also be Community Night, with free admission.

William Woods hits the road for 10 of the next 11 games on its schedule, taking part in tournaments at Baker University and Ashford University. After opening against hosts Baker on September 6, the Owls will take on NAIA National Tournament qualifiers Bellevue University and Kansas Wesleyan University on September 7 and close out tournament action against Ottawa University and Benedictine College.

A home match on September 11 against NCAA Division II foe Quincy University breaks up the travel schedule for WWU. As part of the Patriots' Day contest, the Owls will recognize the contributions and service of members of the United States' Armed Forces by offering free admission with a military ID. The Owls hit the road again on September 14 and 15, participating in the Ashford University Invitational. Opponents and game times for the tournament will be announced at a later date.

William Woods will return to conference action with a six-game stretch starting with home matches against Park University on September 18 and defending AMC champion Columbia College on September 20. The match against the Cougars is presented by Central Dairy. The Owls also take on Lyon College in a pair of road matches on September 22 and visit Harris-Stowe State University on September 24 for two matches. The Owls close out the short road swing with a visit to Lindenwood University-Belleville on September 26.

September 28 marks the first of two triangular matches hosted by William Woods, with the Owls taking on Central Methodist University at 4 p.m. before hosting Westminster College at 8 p.m. CMU and Westminster will square off at 6 p.m. The Owls will follow up the triangular on Saturday with Alumni Recognition Day, hosting Benedictine University at Springfield for a pair of league matches to open a span of nine league contests over its next 11. WWU is on the road for four straight league contests over the first full week of October, visiting Missouri Baptist University on October 2 before wrapping up the season series at both Stephens College and Columbia College on the 4th and 6th and taking on Hannibal-LaGrange on October 9.

William Woods returns to Anderson Arena for a brief respite from conference play, hosting Avila University on October 11 in a match presented by Mid-City Lumber. The Owls return to conference play with a pair of matches against Williams Baptist on October 13, raising money to battle breast cancer with the games serving as the annual "Dig Pink" event as well as Parent's Weekend.

Over the final six games of the regular-season slate, WWU is on the road for just two, taking on College of the Ozarks on October 16 before hosting Missouri Baptist on October 24. The Owls will host a second triangular match on October 27, battling Fontbonne University at 2 p.m. and Missouri Valley College at 6 p.m., with Fontbonne and MVD dueling at 4 p.m. William Woods finishes the regular season with a pair of AMC contests, on the road to Park on October 29 before returning home for Senior Night festivities against Hannibal-LaGrange on November 1 at 7 p.m.

The top eight teams will qualify for the AMC Postseason Tournament, with the higher seed of each pair in the bracket hosting each round's match. The quarterfinals are scheduled for November 6, with the semifinals set for November 8 and the championship match set for November 10. The winner of the AMC Tournament will qualify for the NAIA National Tournament, which begins on campus sites in mid-November.
